Organic Pasture-Raised Eggs

If you have never had a farm-fresh egg laid by a happy hen who was able to enjoy the sunshine, clean air, fresh green grass, and all the insects and worms she could find, you have never had a real egg. All eggs are not created equal. A conventional or organic “factory farm” egg does not have the flavor of a pastured egg.

Our hens are housed in small flocks of around 400-600 hens in a shelter located on about 2 acres of fresh green grass. Approximately once a week, the hens are given a fresh paddock to graze in. That allows the paddock that they were just in to rest and re-grow before the hens return to it again. Attached to the end of the hen’s shelter is a smaller fenced in area where their water and organic chicken feed is located. We call this the picnic area. Our hens enjoy an outdoor picnic in a park setting 365 days a year. The picnic area also allows us to confine the hens when the weather does not permit them to be out on the pasture.

 

Our eggs can be purchased at a number of area health food stores. See the list below.

 

Misleading factory farm egg terms that lead you to think that the hens are happy hens on pasture:

“Free-range” — The term means that sometimes the chickens have access to the out of doors. It can be a dirt lot at the end of a large organic confinement chicken house.

“Free-roaming” — The term means that the chickens are housed on the floor of a large confinement chicken house instead of in small wire cages. They most likely do not have access to the out of doors.

“Cage-free” — The term is basically the same as “free-roaming”.
